Trying to describe her with one word would be impossible. Few can master one genre of music, but pure, God-given talent allows her to master all. Her movements attract you, her music captivates you, and her voice soothes your soul with joy. Her immeasurable vocal, songwriting and producing talents bestow upon audiences a remarkable experience, replenishing one’s hopefulness, love, and aspiration.
On a substantial foundation of education, Hamlin developed classical proficiency and dexterity; learning to sing in French, German, and Italian at the Baltimore School of the Arts and the prestigious Peabody Preparatory School of Music. Tracy Hamlin has performed alongside numerous music legends including Carlos Santana, Marcus Miller, Jonathan Butler, Esperanza Spalding and Chaka Khan, to name a few. She toured internationally as lead background vocalist for Disco Queen, Gloria Gaynor, as well as being credited as vocal arranger on Gloria’s last project. Tracy also toured internationally as the lead vocalist with Jazz recording group, Pieces of a Dream.
Hamlin executive produced five solo albums through her own label, DMH Records, LLC, ‘Seasons’ (2005), ‘Better Days’ (2009), ‘This is My Life’ (2013), ‘Home’ (2013) and ‘No Limits’ (2015). She is currently working on her 6th solo project to be released in 2018.
The songstress fuses the boundaries between Soul, Jazz, R&B and House music and has experienced significant international success, holding the #1 position on the UK Soul Charts for two weeks with Better Days, and also for two weeks with This is My Life in 2013. Her project, No Limits held the #1 position on the UK Soul Charts for five weeks in 2015!
Tracy received her first taste of “behind the scenes” of the music industry while working as a Regional Promotions Manager for Russell Simmons and Def Jam Recordings. In addition, she produces and coordinates an annual mini jazz festival on the beautiful island of St. Lucia.
With 10 years of teaching Music Appreciation to kids with Dyslexia at the Jemicy School, Hamlin’s aspirations are to continue her development and growth as an artist and to continue mentoring a new generation of vocalists while performing around the globe.
